Issue with SSIS packages not completing when run via a SQL job

I have created a number of SSIS packages that run fantastically through Visual Studio.  However, when I add a number of these packages into one sequential SQL job, the job never completes.  It does not error but just remains in an "executing" state when looking at the job activity monitor.  I have no clue why they would run fine when executed in VS but never complete when executed in SQL.  Not all jobs fail in SQL.  I have other jobs which contain SSIS packages which run fine in SQL so I think the configuration is alright.  I need to supply more information but don't know where to start so any assistance or request for more detail will be greatly appreciated.

Unsure.  I've tried the SQL Agent under the administrators account.  No change.  It almost looks like a scheduling problem but these jobs were setup identically to a much smaller server running sql 2000 that ran this consolidated schedule just fine (albeit slowly).  This server is a new and very powerful unit that I wouldn't expect to have problems with jobs running simultaneously.

>> need to supply more information

Turn on logging for the package(s) and see where its getting stuck.

If I recall correctly, you need to specifically create a logging connection manager and use that.

I think I've found it.  Sorry...but thanks for the help.  Apparently, my use of a query multiple times was causing the issue.  I'm new to SSIS so I finallly figured out that I needed, and could, multicast that dataset to the areas needed.  This appears to have cleared up my stalling jobs. I'm still not sure if this was a locking problem or other but it appears to be working.
